19 Optic Patterns for Your Home from Katie Anderson of Modern Eve

Geometric patterns have been one of the hottest trends in interior design in recent years; but now, designers are taking basic chevron to the next level. Shapes are being used to create three-dimensional patterns and visually appealing optical illusions, making this is one pattern trend that is truly eye-catching! Here are my favorite picks:
